Why Hugh, Why?
Hugh Jackman's new look, revealed via Instagram, caused quite the collective gasp at ELLE HQ.
The image shows the 45-year-old actor in a barber's chair with absolutely nada hair yet, antagonistically, also with a fully bristly beard and moustache.
Accompanied by the caption, 'Blackbeard is born. #PAN', the image was instantly met with lamentations from the star's followers.
This transformation is in preparation for Jackman's role as the notorious pirate in upcoming Peter Pan remake, Pan.
